Emporia Main Street is planning to look back at past successes and ahead to the future with its annual meeting Thursday.
Director Casey Woods says a lot will take place in two hours.
The meeting is from 11 am to 1 pm at the White Auditorium Little Theater.
Main Street has been working for years on upper-story development and helping to renovate downtown storefronts through a series of grant and loan programs. It is also heavily involved in special events like the recently-held Glass Blown Open disc golf tournament and Dirty Kanza gravel-grinding bike race. It's trying something new Saturday -- the "Shop Hop," where shoppers go to several downtown businesses for special deals provided they pick up passports this week before the actual event.
